You’ve probably heard that joints often make a popping sound when treated by a chiropractor. This treatment actually refers to joint manipulation.
Joint manipulation, also called chiropractic adjustment, is a specialized technique designed to restore movement in a fixated and out-of-alignment joint. The chiropractor uses gentle pressure or a shallow and quick thrust to put your joints back in alignment.
This treatment is applied to an area that has been compromised by an injury, muscular imbalance, poor posture, and other causes. Through joint manipulation, your body can return to proper movement and avoid further injuries.
Joint manipulation is often used to treat:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Auto accident
- Shoulder pain
- Sports injuries
- Postural pain
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
